Many of the studio artists are highly experienced teachers, and provide individual, group and unique arts tuition. An active program of creative talks,
workshops and regular classes like the ever-popular weekly life drawing, provide personal participation for the general public and professional development
through master classes for established artists.
We are an inclusive organisation and encourage people of all abilities to join in
our events, classes, workshops and hiring of space. Our Arts in Recovery (AiR) program, supports people living with mental health issues through a monthly arts
workshop and an annual celebratory exhibition.
